Pickpockets Golden Arrows on the prowl
After snatching two points in two away games, Lamontville Golden Arrows hope it will be third time lucky when they host Jomo Cosmos tomorrow.
Arrows take on Ezenkosi in an Absa Premiership match at King Zwelithini Stadium after 1-all draws against Wits and Thanda Royal Zulu. Kickoff is at 3.30pm.
Cosmos go into this game with high hopes after registering a 3-1 win over Moroka Swallows at Germiston Stadium last Sunday.
It was Ezenkosi's second win of the season in a game which also saw the troublesome Ugandan international Geoffrey Massa making his debut for the visitors.
Arrows drew 1-1 draw against Bidvest Wits.
Zwe Mzolo, Arrows' publicist, is adamant that the KwaZulu-Natal outfit will send Cosmos back to Gauteng empty-handed.
"We are aware that Cosmos are still celebrating their win over Moroka Swallows, the plan is to spoil the celebrations.
"Our preparations for the game are going well, we came back with two points from the last two games away.
"We are playing at home this time around and the plan is to get maximum points and make sure we improve our position on the log.
"We are not going to underestimate Cosmos because they have a great coach in Jomo Sono, who knows how to plan for a match," said Mzolo.
From Cosmos' camp, team manager Andrew "Jaws of Life" Rabutla said they were gearing themselves up for a tough game.
"Arrows' position on the log [fifth] tells you that they are a good team, we are not going to underestimate them at all," said Rabutla.
Cosmos will pin their hopes on good players like Dikgang Mabalane, Massa, Sipho Sephadi and Anthony Laffor.
The KwaZulu-Natal outfit will rely on Kagisho Dikgacoi, Sehlolo Nale, Norman Smith and Kagiso Senamela.
